G^OA^ERNMIENT SURVEYS 

From Instructions by J. A. WILLIAMSO:Nr, Commissioner. 



HISTORICAIi. 

The rectangular system of surveying G overnment lands, termed the 
Land System of the United States, was adopted by an act of Congress 
passed May 20, 1785. The ordinance provided for townships six miles 
square, containing tlilrty-six sections of one mile square. The region 
embraced by the surveys under this law forms a part of the present 
State of Ohio, and ib usually styled ''Old Seven Eanges." The town- 
ships, six miles squars, were laid out in ranges, extending northward 
from the Ohio River, the townships being numbered from south to 
north, and the ranges from east to west. In these initial surveys only 
the exterior lines of the townships were surveyed and mile corners were 
established on the township lines, -but the plats were marked by subdi- 
visions into sections oi one mile squa.re. The sections were numbered 
from one to thirty-six, commencing with number one in the southeast 
corner of the township, and running from south to north in each tier to 
number thirty-six in the northwest corner of the township. These first 
public surveys were made under the direction of the Geographer of the 
United States. 

The act of Congress approved May 18, 1796, provided for the appoint- 
ment of a surveyor-general, and directed the survey of the lauds north- 
west of the Ohio River and above the mouth of the Kentucky River, 
"in which the titles of the Indian tribes have been extinguished." 
Under this law one-/iaZ/ of the townships surveyed were subdivided into 
sections ''by running through the same, each way, parallel lines at the 
end of every two miles, and by making a corner on each of said hues at 
the end of every mile, " and it further provided that "the sections shall 
be numbered, respectively, beginning with the number one in the 
northeast section, and proceeding west and east alternately, through 
the township, with progressive numbers till the thirty-sixth be com- 
pleted." Tills method of numbering the sections is still in use. 

The act of Congress, approved February 11, 1805, directs the subdi- 
vision of the public lands into quarter sections, and provides that all 
the corners marked in the public surveys shall be establislied as the pro- 
per corners of sections or subdivisions of sections which they were in- 
tended to designate, and that corners of half and quarter sections no^ 
marA;e(Z shall be placed as nearly as possible "equidistant from those 
two corners which stand on the same line." 

The act of Congress, approved April 25, 1812, provided " That there 
shall be estabUshed in the Department of the Treasury an office to be 
denominated the General Land Office, the chief officer of which shall' 
be called the Commissioner of the General Land Office, whose duty it 
shall be, under the direction of the head of the department, to superin- 
tend, execute, and perform all such acts and things touching or respect- 
ing the public lands of the United States and other lands patented or 
granted by the United States, as have heretofore been directed by law to 
be done or performed in the office of the Secretary of State, of the Sec- 
retary and Register of the Treasury, and of the Secretary of War, or 
which shall hereafter by law be assigned to the said office." 

The act of Congress approved July 4, 1836, provided for the reorgani- 
zation of the General Land Office, and that the executive duties of said 
office "shall be subject to the supervision and control of the commis- 
sioner of the General Land Office under the direction of the President 
of the United States." The repealing clause is, "That such provi- 
sions of the act of the twenty-fifth of April, in the year one thousand 
eight hundred and twelve, entitled ' An act for'the estabUshraent of a 
General Land Office in the Department of the Treasury,' and of all 
acts amendatory thereof as are inconsistent with the provisions of this 
act, be, and the same are hereby, repealed." 

From the wording of this act ^-t would appear that the control of the 
General Land Office was remoyed from the Treasury Department, and 
that the Commissioner reported directly to the President, but as a mat- 
ter of fact, the Secretary of the Treasury still had supervisory control^ 
for the act of Congress, approved March 3, 1849, by which the Depart- 
ment of the Interior was established, provided "That the Secretary of 
the Interior shall perform all the duties in relation to the General Land 
Office, of supervision and appeal, now discharged by the Secretary of 
the Treasury. " Ey this act the General Land Office was transferred to 
the Department of the Interior, where it still remains. 

RECTANGULAR SYSTEMS. 

The public lands of the United States are ordinarily surveyed into 
rectangular tracts bounded by lines conforming to the cardinal points. 
The principal lines are designated as meridian, base, township, range, 
and section lines, and the bodies of land thus formed are known as 
townships, sections, and lots. The first recorded use of the terms 
"township" and "section,'^ as applied to the public lands of the 
United States, is in an ordinance reported to Congress April 26, 1785. 

SURYEYINa. 

Initial points from which the lines of the public surveys are to be 
extended must be established whenever necessary under such special 
instructions as may be prescribed in each case by the Commissioner of 
the General Land Office. The locus of such initial points must be se- 
lected with great care and due consideration for their prominence and 
easy identification, and must be established astronomically. The ini- 
tial point having been established, the lines of the public survey are to 
be extended therefrom as follows :— 

PRINCIPAL MERIDIAN AND BASE LINES 

are extended north and south and east and west from the initial point 
by the use of solar instruments or transits, as may be directed by the 
i5urveyor GeuA^al. In order to check errors in meas-^rement, two sets 



of chainmen, operating independently of each other, must be employed, 
and the proper corners established. Principal meridians are designated 
by number or name, as the Fourth and Fifth principal meridians in 
Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, and eastern Dakota, 
or the "Black Hills" meridian in westeru Dakota, and the Salt Lake 
meridian in Utah. 

STANDARDS AND AUXILIARIES. 

Standard parallels, which are also called correction hues, and aux- 
iliary or guide meridians, are run from time to time, and are designated 
by number, and as north, south, east, or west, as the case may be, from 
their respective base lines and principal meridians ; parallels and aux- 
. iliaries are now run at intervals of twenty-four miles, dividing the 
country into tracts of twenty-four miles square, or sixteen townships. 

TOWNSHIPS AND RANGES. 

Township lines are run east and west parallel with and six miles 
from the base line and from each other, and the spaces between these 
lines are known as townships north or south, and designated by num- 
bers according to their numerical distance from the base line. Eange 
lines are run north and south on a true meridian, six miles from and 
parallel, as near as may be, with the principal meridian, and the spaces 
between them are known as ranges, and are described as east or west 
of the principal meridian, and consecutively numbered from that line. 
The bodies of land six miles square, formed by the intersection of the 
township and range lines, are called 

CONGRESSIONAL TOWNSHIPS, 

and contain, as near as may be, 23,040 acres. Congressional town- 
ships are described and located as being north or south of the base line 
and east or west of the Principal Meridian from which that particu- 
lar survey is made. Thus township one north, range three west of 
the Fifth principal" meridian, would be the first township north of the . 
base hue and in the third range west from the principal meridian. The 
law requires that the lines of the public surveys shall be governed by 
the true meridian, and that the townships shall be six miles square^ 
two things involving, in connection, a mathematical impossibihty, for, 
strictly to conform to the" meridian^ necessarily throws the township 
out of square, by reason of the convergency of the meridians, and hence, 
by adhering to the true meridian, results the necessity of departing from 
the strict requirements of law, as respects the precise area of townships 
and the subdi visional parts' thereof, the townships assumipg something 
of a trapezoidal form,; which inequality develops itself more and more 
as such, the higher the latitude of the surveys. 

Congressional townships are subdivided into thirty-six tracts, called 

SECTIONS, 

each contvtming as near as may be 640 acres. The thirty-six sections 
into which a township is subdivided are numbered, commencing with 
number one at the northeast angle of the township, and proceeding 
west to number six, and thence proceeding east to number twelve, and 
so on>, alternately, until they number thirty-six in the southeast angle. 
In all cases of surveys ef fractional townships, the sections should bear 
the same number as they would if the township was full. In all cases 
where the* exterior lines of the townships, thus subdivided into sec- 
tions or half sections, shall exceed, or shall not extend six miles, the 
excess or deficiency shall be -specially noted, arid added to or deducted 
froni the western or northern ranges* of sections or half sections in such 
township, ac^'ording as the error may be in running the lines from east 
to west, or from south,to north • the sections and half sections bounded 
on the northern and rwestern lines- of such townships shall be sold as 
containing only the quantity expressed in the returns and plats respec- 
tively, and all others as containing, the complete legal quantity. 

Sections are divided into qua:rterS;by straight lines run from the es- 
tablished quarter section corners— United States surveys— to the oppo- 
site corresponding corners, and th^ point of intersection of the fines so 
run will be the corner: common to' the several quarter sections, or, in 
other words, the legal centre of the section ; these quarter sections are 
designated as northeast quarter, .northwest, southwest, or southeast, 
according to their location with regard to their common corner. 




In the subdivision of quarter sections, the quarter quarter corners are 
to be placed at points equidistant between the section and quarter sec- 
tion corners and between the quarter corners and the common centre 



of the section, except on the last half mile of the lines closing on the 
north or west boundaries of a township, where they should be placed 
at twenty chains, proportionate measurement, to the north or west of 
the quarter section corner. 

Fractional sections and those containing meandered rivers and lakes 
are also divided into 40 acre lots, as near as may be, these fractional 
lots are numbered from one upwards in each section. By an examina- 
tion of the accompanying diagram and of the maps on other pages of 
this work, the careful student will be enabled to describe or locate any 
piece of land. IsTumbers 1, 2-6 are the numbers of the meandered lots, 
A is the north sixty acres of the north half of the northwest quarter^ 
B, south twenty acres, north half northwest quarter ; (7, northwest 
quarter of the southeast of the northwest quarter ; D, east one-half 
southeast northwest; e is the section corner,/ north quarter corner, 
g west quarter corner, h quarter quarter corner. 

Proceeding down stream, the bank on the left hand is termed the 
''left bank" and that on the right hand the "right bank." These 
terms are to be universally used to distinguish the two banks of a river 
or stream. 

MARKING LINES. 

All lines on which are to be established the legal corner boundaries 
are to be marked after this method, viz : Those trees which may in- 
tercept your line must have two chops or notches cut on each side of 
them without any other marks whatever. These are called ''sight trees'" 
or " line trees.''^ A sufficient number of other trees standing within fifty 
links of the line, on either side of it, are to be blazed on two sides diag- 
onally, or quartering towards the line, in order to render the line con- 
spicuous and readily to be traced, the blazes to be opposite each other, 
coinciding in direction with the line where the trees stand very near it 
and to approach nearer each other the farther the line passes from ttie 
blazed trees. Due care must ever be taken to have the lines so well 
marked as to be readily followed, and to cut the blazes deep enough to 
have recognizable scars as long as the tree shall stand. Where trees 
two inches or more in diameter are found, the required blazes must not 
be omitted. Bushes on or near the line should be bent at right angles 
therewith, and receive a blow of the axe at about the usual height of 
blazes from the ground sufficient to leave them in a bent position, but 
not to prevent their growth, 

CORNERS. 

The following are the different points for perpetuating corners, viz : 
Por township boundaries, at intervals of every six miles. Por section 
boundaries, at intervals of every mile, or eighty chains. For quarter 
section boundaries, at intervals of evei»y half mile, or forty chains ; ex- 
■ ceptions, however, occur, as has already been explained. Meander cor- 
ners are established at all those points where the lines of the public 
surveys intersect the banks of such rivers, bayous, lakes, or islands as 
are by law directed to be., meandered. Corners may be marked by a 
cross (x) marked at exact corner point on a rock in place, or by marks 
on a tree growing at the corner. Corners are also marked by stones, 
posts, burnt stakes, charcoal, mounds of stone and earth, and pits. 
Witness corners or bearing trees are also established to assist in identi- 
fying the true corner. Township corners common to fbnv townships, 
and section corners common to four sections, are to be set diagonally in 
the earth, with angles in the direction of the lines. All other corners 
are to be set square, with sides facing the direction of the lines. Stones 
and posts at township corners are marked with six notches on the edges, 
stones and posts at section corners are marked on the south and east 
edges with as many notches as the corner is distant in miles from the 
south and east township lines. 

RE-ESTABLISHMENT OP LOST CORNERS. 

The original corners, where they can be found, must stand as the 
true corners they were intended to represent, even though not exactly 
where strict professional care might have placed them in the first in- 
stance. 

Missing corners should be re-established in the identical localities 
they originally occupied. When the point cannot be determined by 
the existing landmarks in the field, resort must be had to the field notes 
of the original survey. The law provides that the lengths of the lines, 
as stated in the field notes shall be considered as the true lengths thereof, 
and the distances between corners set down in the field notes constitute 
proper data from which to determine the true locality of a missing cor- 
ner ; hence the rule that all such should be restored at distances pro- 
portionate to the original measurements between existing original cor- 
ners. That is, if the measurement between two existing corners dif- 
fers from that stated in the field notes, the excess or deficiency should 
be distributed proportionately among the intervening section lines be- 
tween the said existing corners standing in their original places. Miss- 
ing corners on standard township and range lines should be restored 
by proportionate measurement between the nearest existing original 
corners on those lines. Missing section corners in the interior of town- 
ships should be re-established at proportionate distances between the 
nearest existing original corners north and south of the missing corners. 

As has been obs'^.rved, no existing original corner can be disturbed, 
and it will be plain that any excess or deficiency in measurements be- 
tween existing corners cannot in any degree affect the distances beyond 
said existing corners, but must be added or subtracted proportionately 
to or from the intervals embraced between the corners which are still 
standing.

and two sisters (Mrs. Zilla A. Conkling and Mrs. S. Maria 
Murtha) all continue to reside. He attended the village schools, 
and at the age of fourteen began clerking in a store, which occu- 
pation he followed until he was twenty-one years of age, when he 
purchased from his brother, N. W. Struble, a half interest in his gen- 
eral store, after which a prosperous business in this line was carried 
on by them under the firm name of N. W. & J. H. Struble until 
March 14, 1892, when he bought out his brother's interest in the 
business, and became sole owner, since which he has enjoyed a 
good and increased business. His stock is one of the largest in 
the county, and is selected with great care and well adapted to 
meet the demands of the consumers in this locality. Mr. Struble

sented to accept various township and village offices, the duties 
of which were performed eminently satisfactory to his constit- 
uents,
